Our 3rd Annual Veterans Day Funshoot is coming up this Sunday! All proceeds from this fundraiser go to Wreaths Across America. This organization places wreaths on the graves of the veterans at National Cemeteries, our wreaths go to San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery.
The day starts with the High Power Rifle Match, $15 per relay – each relay is about 50 rounds and consists of 4 stages.
About the same time we have the Pistol Funshoot, $5 per relay – each relay is at least 48 rounds and consists of 8 fun stations where you get to shoot various types of targets (there is an extra 9th station that takes extra rounds).
Then starting at noon is the Trap Funshoot, $15 per shooter, try your skills at various shooting games: sliders, wobbles, follow the leader, chips, etc…
This year the members from the Oakdale VFW Aux will be BBQing up some hotdogs and polish dogs for lunch (additional donation), starting at 11am.
Our sport, the shooting sport, is one of the safest hobbies because of basic common sense rules supervised by Range Safety Officers. To help more of our members join that elite group Manteca Sportsmen Inc. is sponsoring another official NRA RSO certification class.
NRA Instructor, Club member and Chief Range Safety Officer Richard “Dick” Reizner will lead the class sharing his 60 plus years of shooting experience. Dick said, “While the information the class provides is important, the RSO’s attitude in passing it on is what really makes the range safe for shooters.”
The two sessions will be held at the Manteca Sportsmen Inc. range, 30261 Airport Way Manteca on March 10 and 17 from noon to 5:00 PM (must attend both sessions to complete the course).
The cost for club members is $35, for non-members it is $150. The class is normally priced at about $180.
